The simple answer to this question is- yes you can but if you have to ask probably not.
reason being most kitesurf boards are too small for all but good people to surf and good surfers can then feel the difference in flex and weight. production kitesurf boards are simply made too strong and heavy (think warranties) to feel good when surfing. for instance pro surfers won't ride anything more than a single 4oz glass job. if you used one of these boards kiting it probably wouldn't last an hour!
That saying some kite brands are getting close now, with the North pro surfing pretty good in punchy waves and I hear the Cabs feel ok too.
Over the last few years I have been working with my shapers and Inlayz to make surfboards that still feel great to surf but hold up for kiting. we have found a mix between s glass, e glass and inlayz using polyester resin works best. the big difference with polyester compared to epoxy is that it is less brittle and gives a bit. this results in less cracks and dings from knocks on the board although you do get a bit more heel denting after a while. we have combated this by using an Inlayz on the deck with a full length 4oz s glass with a 3/4 e glass on top. this mix gives a dampening effect while maintaining great flex and the Inlayz doubles the strength of the glass without the weight and also gives you a choice of great graphics.
With these boards everyone can have a board they can surf as well as kite. It is better to have it alongside a regular kitesurf board as we do not recommend jumping and most people prefer a slightly bigger board to surf which then works amazing on the kite in good clean waves and lighter winds.
Check the website for the range of boards http://www.jpsurfboards.co.uk
all available in kite layup. Highly recommend the S1 & SX for good surfers and the RX for more average surfers. All have been heavily tested on the kite and work amazing. Pick the model for your ability and wave type.
Grab the next issue of Kitesurf Magazine where the board is on test in the mega wave issue.
